you have some good advice, my question is when it comes to watching HD programming on my HD topset cable box, i click "INFO" on my Samsung's remote and it says "1980 x 1080i" even though the native is lower than the Westinghouse.... does that mean "this is what the Samsung is receiving, even though the highest output is 1280 x 720"??? when i go to SD channels, it shows a lower resolution, most likely in the 480i range (hard to watch because of how terrible it looks on a 61" screen!), and adapts the picture to fit the full width of the screen automatically as per the settings we configured....
this will be a temporary setup as i'm sure we'll be getting rid of the Samsung DLP for a full 1080p as soon as the lamp blows (should be later this year as we've had it for 2 years already), we bought it from Circuit Chitty
, and got the free lamp replacement, so that should help with the sale of the TV! plus the enclosure is big enough for at most 70" and everyone knows you have to get the biggest TV on the block, haha
when trying to configure output to 720p on the PS3, it notifies me that the automatic configuration can support up to 1080i - why would the PS3 say the TV can support higher resolution (which it can) when all it will do with the higher resolution is DOWNSCALE it back to 720p???
